Matching pantone

26/06/2013

I love it when clever people come up with something and it makes me go - AHHH wish I'd come up with that!!! Cool photographer Paul Octavious {I posted about his leaning trees here) has titled this project 'The Pantone Project' and he simply matches Pantone swatches to things he discovers around the World. Genius. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and I just love how simple the idea is, but how well it works. Well done Paul. Do you love this too? Happy Wednesday :)

  5. In the end you get the point - Men only get to name things...
    You couldn't come up with all those brilliant ideas because you - really! - need to sleep and you already dream and find so much creativity and beauty when you're awake ;) ahahahahah
    Lovely idea indeed. Can you imagine how much beauty he had to dwell in to make this?! Best job in the world - enjoy the world around you :)
